Alison (WTA-58), seeded eight at the WTA-tournament in Seoul, had to face first seed Irina-Camelia Begu (WTA-29) in the semis. Last year Ali beat her in straight sets in Florianopolis but today she had no answer to the game of the Romanian.
The Belgian did not succeed to win a game in the first set and lost it 0-6 to her opponent. In the second set Alison won her service game twice, but it was not enough. She lost the set 2-6.
After a difficult summer Alison can look back with satisfaction to her tournament in Seoul. Because of her good performance in Seoul, she had to withdraw for the qualifications in Wuhan.
